There are an estimated 1.61 billion Muslims worldwide, making Islamic Banking the fastest growing segment of the financial industry. Islamic Banks now exist in more than 60 countries, including Albania, Algeria, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, British Virgin Islands, Brunei, Canada, Cayman Islands, Denmark, Djibouti, Egypt, France, Gambia, Germany, Guinea, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Italy, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States and Yemen.
In order for Islamic Banks to be competitive with conventional banks and attractive to customers, Islamic financial products must meet the risk/reward profiles of depositors, investors and issuers, while at the same time following the laws of Sharia. Additionally, Islamic Banks must educate their personnel to understand the tenets of Islamic law that pertain to banking. Edcommís Bankerís Academy has created Islamic Banking Compliance to address these vital needs with Consulting, Documentation and Training.
